BGS supports Secret Santa Appeal for children across Bradford

A Secret Santa organisation is hoping for the continued generosity of local businesses and residents so they can make Christmas extra special for vulnerable children across the district.

Now in its 27th year, the Secret Santa Appeal, will be launched at the Kirkgate Shopping Centre later this month by Bradford District’s Junior Chamber, JCI Bradford. Organisers hope to beat last year’s total when more than 4,500 children received a gift on Christmas Day.

Co-ordinator Michelle Pemberton said: “We make appeals through local charities for children to be nominated for a gift. We then make up a tag with the child’s details on it for someone to buy a gift. The charities then distribute the gifts to the children.

“We can’t thank Bradford residents enough for their kindness. We see some of the same people each year and some of them look as though they haven’t much themselves but they still donate a gift for a child. It is so touching.”

One of the first schools to get on board with the project is Bradford Grammar School which has been a key supporter and for over 15 years. Last year the school donated more than 300 gifts.
